How to Rewire Your Brain for Success

The latest neuroscience suggests you can literally "edit" your memory. Here's what this big breakthrough means for you.

The most recent edition of The New Yorker magazine contains an article about neuroscientists who study the way the brain retrieves memories. What they've found out is probably the most important breakthrough of all time in the field of success training.

How the Brain Remembers


Most people think about human memory as a videotape or computer memory.  When you remember something, you're playing back the memory, which is vivid or vague depending on how good you are at remembering things.
It turns out that human memory isn't like that at all.  When you remember something, your brain is "rewiring" the connections between neurons, literally changing the structure of your brain.
Rather than video playback, human memory is more like video editing.  When you remember something you are recreating, changing, and re-memorizing. The memory is subject to change every time you remember it.
According to the latest research, it's possible to intentionally edit bad memories to remove the bad feelings associated with those memories. This new memory therapy is being used treat to PTSD sufferers.
What This Means to You
Your attitude and behavior--the two things that make you successful--are heavily influenced by your memories.
For example, if you've experienced a painful failure in the past, you're more likely to avoid taking risks, even when they're smart risks.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
